Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

9.1

This is a bottle I've looked at 8-10 times and put back recently. While...tasty, still needs lots of bedrest. This 07 C-d-P leans heavily towards Cornas. Heavy, dark tarry. It's seriously dark cassis, the core flavor of anise, blackberries are a under statement, dark cherry liqueur, olallieberries haunt throughout, Christmas cake, dark chocolate, dark cocoa, caramel, vanilla, caramel, burnt toast, dry dark florals, heavily grilled meats, strong leather, dry stones, heavy spice; big clove & nutmeg, dry stems-brambly, dry brown volcanic minerals with dust, decent acidity, strong concentration, structure, length and still out of balance with the earth it's showing. Better in 5 or more years. Wine is still so young & fresh, I'm glad I Coravin-ed it. — 14 days ago

H.B. Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

This was difficult, the 2nd day was way better than the first day using Coravin.

Would need to retry this.

Second Coravin of this bottle since last May. Spiced dark fruit, black licorice, Asian spice and lavender & dry florals on the nose. The 12's do drink nicely young and will certainly cellar but not nearly as long as the 13's. The 13's are going to cellar 20-40 years for many of the high quality producers. The palate is black cassis; blackberries, black plum, black cherries, black raspberries, spiced plum, decayed florals & lavender, black licorice anise, tarry notes, black tea, baking spices; clove, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, nut skin, chunky dark volcanic minerals, crushed rocks, cigar leaf and ash, used leather, nice acidity, strong structure & length, good balance of fruit & earth and rich, big body, long, elegant fruit finish with spice. Looking forward to barrel tasting their 16 single vineyard Cabernetsin May. Have a great President's Day weekend! — 6 days ago

9.0

The 10 vintage hasn't revealed it's true self. I Coravin-ed this tasting. The fruits are juicy; blackberries, black plum, dark cherries, huge baking spices; vanilla, toasted coconut, caramel, cinnamon, clove & nutmeg, Asian spice, black olive, green bell pepper (issues with fruit ripening), violets, dry crushed rocks, volcanic minerals, leathery, tobacco leaf, pepper, grilled meats, acidity is slightly off, the tannins are still fairly big as is the structure & length. The balance is a little off as it's still slightly more earth over fruit for CA Cabernet, but the finish is solid. Better things in five years. — 6 days ago

Caymus Vineyards

40th Anniversary Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

4th Coravin pour since 7/25/15, still great, fresh & consistent. Deep ruby red with focused aromas of black fruit, herbs and vanilla spice. The palate had a burst of vanilla flavor which needed to calm for about 30 minutes first. The wine opened with fresh sweet ripe dark fruit, blackberry and black cherry, with complex oak, leather and chocolate. Well balanced, tannins continuing to develop nicely, slightly savory, finishing with sweet vanilla oak. It works! Check back in about 6 months for another pour. — 15 days ago

Archery Summit

Premier Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2011

Tried via coravin first and it was very quiet. I was hoping it would blossom and boy did it.Heavy cherry nose, red fruit and light bit of spice on the palate. Lovely finish with a bit of dryness I didn't expect. Loved it! — a month ago
